Ok, I am stuck...heres my question...

I want to add a column to a table and set the default value of any new
record to 0....

so i tried...

<cfquery datasource="#application.dsn#" name="AlterTable">
ALTER TABLE ForumThreads
ADD NumberofViews INT

but i get errors saying invalid SQL syntax...

so does Access set defaults in some wierd way?
